‘A Bet Is Placed’ by YZ Chin

I love the vantage point of this story. It opens with an old man looking at young people ordering munch in KFC. There’s such a cinematic quality to YZ Chin’s writing. This story lingers on the idea of growing into modernity. 

First published on LitHub in April 2018 and available to read here, and collected in Though I Get Home, Feminist Press, 2018
